Re: ld build configured with additional targets is broken

Hi Guys,

  OK - I have checked in a patch to remove support for $PLATFORM in rpath
  search strings.  This seems to be the safest thing to do, as I was never
  sure that the support would actually be correct anyway.


2016-11-04  Nick Clifton  <>

	* emultempl/elf32.em (search_needed): Remove use of getauxval and
	inclusion of <sys/auxv.h>.  Replace support for $PLATFORM with a
	warning message.
	* (AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Remove getauxval.
	* configure: Regenerate.
	* Regenerate.
